The Others

I watched my first Netflix movie last night as my husband and son both snoozed away. Remind me never to watch a scary movie alone again in my old farmhouse...too many squeaks and creaks going on around me.

Anyway...I "got" most of the movie (which I will not discuss for fear of spoiling it for anyone who has not seen it). But could someone please email me and tell me what was the deal with the husband? Thanks!

I love Netflix!

Hi Catherine -- I liked the movie; it had a great mood & Nicole Kidman was fine in the role. The trouble is I saw the movie when it came out four or more years ago & cannot remember any details. Maybe you'll have to watch the last act again to know what happened. Sorry I couldn't be of any help.

That is SO weird...every time I Get up at night to go to the bathroom I think of that movie, and it scares the SH*T OUT OF ME. Truly, truly creepy.

Hubs turns out the be the same way. He knows it, they don't. That's why he's so weird.

LOVE how much you update! I refresh all the time just to see! Does anyone at work get suspicious?

I agree with Rach...He knows the truth and they don't. That's why he's so weird, and also why he can't stay there. He has to go back to the place where he...you know. I loved that movie. (Chris and I actually watched it on our wedding night. Weird, I know.)

I always thought the husband umm... you know... didn't "come home" from the war. I don't know... I think I'll have to go rewatch it.

Yup, I will have to rewatch it I think. I did get it by the end but it's definitely not a movie to watch in the dark or alone!

[Trying to be opaque for those who haven't seen it...]

I love 'The Others,' and I usually can't stand those sort of movies (thrillers, suspense, horror). Although the part that creeps me out the most is when our heroine finds the cache of pictures. I know people used to do those, and I myself used to take forensic photographs, but I still think it's really morbid and sad, in that order. People used to take them because that often was the only professional photos they'd ever have, and it's weird to us now how the standards of making people look their best were at work even in that situation. I guess we still do it, with wakes and such...

And oh, I agree with Cari. She's still waiting, refusing to believe it.
